The 20th Annual WISEPlace Gala held on October 12, 2019 was an unforgettable evening that raised an astonishing $265,000 toward our mission to provide housing and hope for unaccompanied women experiencing homelessness.
The sold-out crowd of 225 guests made this event truly unforgettable. Thank you to everyone who purchased an auction item, raffle ticket, or donated. Your generosity made this evening a rousing success for all of the women WISEPlace serves!
The mission of the gala was brought home by moving remarks from Kristen Zampa-Dawson. A WISEPlace graduate, Kristen described her journey from homelessness to independence. She shared, “At WISEPlace, I learned new skills, got a job, and started to rebuild my life. I am whole again.” Thank you, Kristen, for being an inspiration to our current WISEPlace participants and supporters alike.
We were also proud to recognize our Individual Honoree, Harriet Harris, and our Corporate Honoree, Bill Hirsch of Affordable Housing Access. These outstanding honorees have generously given their time, talent, and treasure to WISEPlace and we are grateful for their ongoing support.
